So… today’s post isn’t really a recipe, and it’s kind of a tease, since the key ingredient can be hard to find in the US, but it’s one of our favorite desserts.
Meet: The Tim Tam.
Eat: The Tim Tam Slam
I introduced Josh to this treasure years ago, and now he’s every bit as hooked as I am. Sadly, it’s not always easy to find Tim Tams in the US, but I have a few options for you.
For one, stores like World Market or Jungle Jim’s, sometimes even Publix or any store that has a British/Australian section might carry them. We got ours this time at Jungle Jim’s, and they even had a wide variety of flavors. I’ve had both the classic chocolate cream and the type with the caramel center, and I prefer the classic. The caramel doesn’t always melt well, which is just cruel and throws off the texture.
Your other option is to wait until January, when Pepperidge Farm should be releasing their version in the US. They normally sell them for a few months around the holidays every year, so I’m not sure why they’re waiting so long, but I saw it on their FB page (which is apparently a thing) that they should arrive in the beginning of the year.
In terms of beverages to dip them in; coffee, hot chocolate, and peppermint tea are all excellent choices, though I’m sure it would really work in just about any hot drink.
Find them, stock up, and start slamming.
